The first and most difficult decision to make when changing the design in a room in your home is choosing the furniture style you want the room to have.
Do you want rustic charm, exuding warmth and coziness?
Rustic style uses larger sometimes oversized pieces, earthy, cozy colors, a very easy style to decorate with in the Fall time, easy to add Thanksgiving decorations. Rustic brings together leather and wood in warm-toned colors with emphasis on textures. This style can be combined with other styles such as contemporary to give more of an urban chic feel.

Do you want a Pure Country Furniture look?
Do you like the countryside and wish for a simpler lifestyle? Then the country style is more for you. The style of the furniture is less about shape and more about function bringing in pastel shades, cottons and florals in fabrics. It has a happy vibe.
Do you like geometrical shapes? Do you like the natural beauty of word in the grain?
Maybe, Mission style is for you. It is simple and comfortable. It originated in the late 1800’s, with leathers, wood grain, especially oak and stained glass, evident in lamps and insets. You will see the straight lines in the furniture design. Owners of craftsman style properties lean to this mission style.
If you have a darker room you can elevate the feeling of the walls and ceilings closing in by using lighter colored furniture. It can be country styled paired with florals and pastels.
The classic white or ivory couch is timeless. It can be accented with cushions, artwork and lamps in multiple hues both intense or pale in color depending on your style.
A white table with inserts is a must have for everyday regular use and for visitors arriving at the many time of the year. It can be styled to be rustic for everyday use, or bring in the metals, such as golds and silvers, for those special occasions. It is a blank canvas to work with.
A white dining set can be regular height or counter height for a more casual look. A counter height table and chairs set is a statement piece that can center people together for a drink and snack, or be fancy, all the way to a full dinner with a glass of wine. The table décor can be adjusted according to the event but the furniture piece is classic and timeless.
